trying something new

so, i’ve been making these photos since thanksgiving 2011.  about two months.  i’m a bit obsessed.  let me show, then i’ll talk.

these were the first ones.  it was kind of a lark.  i ride the bus to and from work everyday, and there is something about the movement, the shifting, overlapping landscape that just keeps coming that i thought was really interesting, and i loved what i was getting.

now, background.  these are all taken with my cell phone.  iphone4, with a nifty little app.  nothing crazy, just giving me a slower shutter speed.  but i keep making them now.  even thought i’m in prague, i’m still taking public transportation everywhere, so i’m riding trams and seeing the city slide past me on a daily basis.  now, it’s not really sunny here in prague in january, so the images have shifted to be a bit gray-er.

but i’m really fascinated by these things.  i think my favorite is the one with the person in profile, but it is actually harder than i thought to get good shots of folks (you need reflections, which means either really bright sun or after the sun has set, and then you need good angles – tricky).  but still.  they keep accumulating.  thought i’d share.  i’ll let you know if they keep going somewhere…




Who I am…

I am a self-professed geek. I happen to be an artist. I like to geek out about art, specifically photography.
